Lake Placid chosen to host 2024 bobsled, skeleton, luge congresses

LAKE PLACID — The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation and the International Luge Federation announced last week that they have selected Lake Placid as the host city for their 2024 Congresses.

“Hosting the IBSF and FIL Congresses in Lake Placid is an amazing way to showcase the significant investments the state of New York has made in upgrading the Olympic and Paralympic venues in the region. Attendees from around the world will get a chance to see the incredible work that has taken place,” said Aron McGuire, CEO of USA Bobsled/Skeleton.

The IBSF Congress will take place on June 18 and June 19, 2024, with a day of joint meetings with FIL planned for Sunday, June 16. The location and dates for the two international federations have been coordinated in an effort to reduce flights and minimize costs in hosting the event. Additionally, the joint meetings will provide an opportunity for collaboration as the organizations work together to ensure a successful and sustainable future for sliding sports.

The state Olympic Regional Development Authority will host and help organize the two International Federations and national bobsled, skeleton and luge federations that will attend.
